A man who fell 20 feet from the roof of a property has been airlifted to a major trauma centre by ambulance staff in Staffordshire this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Anslow Road in Hanbury, Burton-on-Trent at around 12.50pm earlier today. A responder paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill airbase were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The man was fully conscious and breathing following the 20 feet fall from a roof landing onto a concrete floor. Upon assessment by ambulance staff they found he had sustained a suspected pelvic injury and an injury to his right arm.

“The man was given pain relief and once it had taken effect the ambulance staff carefully immobilised him with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint before airlifting him to Royal Stoke University Hospital, a major trauma centre, for further assessment and treatment.”
